ENCINITAS – For the second time in two months, a motorist collided with a bicyclist at an identical spot on Coast Highway 101.

On Friday, a motorist traveling south on the highway, attempted a left hand turn into the driveway of the Ride Cyclery bicycle shop, when the vehicle collided with a cyclist heading southbound.

The cyclist, who was wearing a helmet, sustained cuts and bruises and received treatment from emergency personnel at the scene. The rider wasn’t taken to a hospital, according to Sheriff’s deputy Aaron Montan.

Montan said the driver just didn’t see the cyclist before making the turn.

In February, a motorist hit a bicyclist at the same location. The cyclist also sustained minor injuries, but was taken to the hospital for further evaluation, after a vehicle attempted to make a right hand turn into the driveway.
